    OnePlus launching a mystery product tomorrow in China, could it be the OnePlus Z?

    Well I was comparing the OP8 pro model here. Also Huawei's notch is probably even worse than the punch hole.
    OP's Android Oxygen is much better although I agree the camera in Huawei is miles better.

    We should also consider Huawei P30 pro model was super expensive at launch.

    It depends on personal preference. For me Oxygen OS is miles better and I'm sure many others feel the same.
    Samsung's camera spec is much better but they usually have a tendency of overprocessing saturation and contrast.

    I got the S20 ultra at £1199 but I didn't think it was worth more than £700-£800 so returned it. Actually I found camera focussing issue as well.
    I'll not upgrade to OP8 pro either because of punch hole.
    My OP3 is still running like a beast but after 3-4 years usage struggling with space regularly. So probably most reasonable option for me now is to get a OP7 pro or 7T pro at a reduced price when this crisis is over.

    I don't know think I find the price worth it. Unless I can use referral points I'm most likely skipping this and keeping my Oneplus 5.
    Waiting for what the 8t Pro will offer.

    So what Else do you Need....it survives in a bucket of water:

    The camera has a seal, I don’t think this will let water in and I don’t know where that rumor comes from.that they skipped the pop up because of this.
    I never drowned any of my phones or iPads, sometimes there is rain or I accidentally pour some drinks over them and I always clean them with water and soap. No device died and they are almost never ip rated so I don’t care.



    I've seen testing of it under actually pools, it's not as strong compared to ip68 rated devices. Under a little water sure, but it's no ip68. It's seals are not as reinforced as other phones so it'll leak in there far easier than say a galaxy s10.

    Oneplus said themselves, it's good for rain or a small puddle but that's it.

    well I would say optimization,but clearly someone who is willing to shift Mi would hardly know anything about that.

    The article speculated that may be the case.... charge other territories higher prices to subsidise the losses in the Indian market where it's biggest share is.

    Well. Different countries have different buying force. Even stuff like apps in Play Store can be cheaper in India.

    Sometimes when it comes to electronics prices can go down due to variations in assembly line. Some electronics may even have slightly different components from different factories to lower the costs to maximize the profit in counties where the profit otherwise would be low.

    China gets a lower price... If you are in India you probably get it cheaper too...
    But also check what everyone else demands for high end SD865 equpied phone. Oneplus is not alone with the price bump

    One plus 7 pro is perfect . One plus 8 pro disappointment,cut out screen,price up because of things that people who really like this company doesn't care,for example wireless charging ,why,dash charging is so fast that you don't need wireless, waterproof certificate !? It was already waterproof i literally take showers and watch tv show or even play games in bathtub even dropped couple times . So all that things that put price up is unnecessary. I hope one plus company will see mistake and make it better on one plus 9 pro just like they made 7 pro just with hardware upgrade. For now one plus 7 pro is king.And one more thing 5g technology is not available everywhere and next year it will be better and more coverage so this is year for skipping new 5g phones .

    Really, the 7 Pro is a great phone, swapping it out for the 8 Pro would be on a whim. A new model is not intended for the owners of the previous model, there are many more people on the planet.
